Keeper of the Grove Additional Information
- Keeper of the Grove was changed from 4 Health to 2 Health when the Standard Format was released on April 26th, 2016. [Source]
- “Keeper of the Grove is a strong and versatile minion that combines Silence with solid stats, which made the decision to include it in every Druid deck virtually automatic. Whether or not to introduce a source of Silence to a deck should require some decision making, so Keeper of the Grove shouldn’t be a default choice for all Druid decks. Its stats have been changed from 2/4 to 2/2.” [Source]
This is completely useless when for one less mana and health you get an owl.
Nerfing it to 2/3 would have been enough I reckon – there are plenty of things that deal 3 damage to remove it from the board without bringing it down to something that can be mopped up with a defunct Abusive Sergeant.
If you are after silence you’ll just play Spellbreaker instead? Nearly Warsong Commander bad.
Agreed, totally unnecessary! Decided lets ignore mage and warrior and lets totally screw druid :/
